Damn again--that's what I get for having steadfastly ignored Ace for over 35 years. I didn't even know the track list.

In framing the original question, I had intended to exclude also those songs that appeared on Garcia solo LPs, and the wording of the question supports that, in not specifying a "Grateful Dead" official release. Playing in the Band isn't a problem, as it appeared on Skullfuck. But not counting solo LPs in the list of official releases would let in The Wheel (258), They Love Each Other (225), Cassidy (338), and Looks Like Rain (413). Actually, I should have been thinking of those latter two, since I was blissfully unaware of their versions on Ace.

But, the leader among songs not appearing on any official releases pre-1995, including solo albums, appears to be Peggy-O. Sorry for giving it away.

It was also on Skeletons in th e Closet. Not an "album", but probably one of the most popular GD releases out there,
